DELINEATION OF THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE'S PLACE IN OREGON EDUCATION.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
COMMUNITY COLLEGES IN OREGON, HAVING RESOURCES AND FLEXIBILITY TO MEET MANY DEMANDS FOR POST-HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION, ARE INTENDED TO OFFER BROAD, COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAMS IN BOTH ACADEMIC AND VOCATIONAL FIELDS. THEY SHOULD BE (1) LOCAL, WITHIN COMMUTING RANGE FOR MOST OF THEIR STUDENTS, (2) OPEN TO ALL WHO CAN PROFIT FROM THEIR PROGRAMS, (3) PART OF A SYSTEM OF FREE PUBLIC EDUCATION THROUGH GRADE 14, AND (4) PROHIBITED BY LAW FROM BECOMING 4-YEAR COLLEGES. THE BASIS OF FINANCE BASED ON FULL-TIME EQUIVALENTS IS SOUND, BUT SHOULD REFLECT COST VARIATIONS AMONG PROGRAMS. FEDERAL FUNDS SHOULD SUPPLEMENT, NOT SUPPLANT, STATE SUPPORT. THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION SHOULD CONTINUE ITS PRESENT RESPONSIBILITIES CONCERNING NEW DISTRICTS, SITES, STANDARDS, FUNDS AND ARCHITECTURAL STANDARDS. CONTINUED PLANNING IS ESSENTIAL, WITH ENCOURAGEMENT OF COOPERATIVE EFFORT WHEN IT IS DESIRABLE. A QUESTIONNAIRE USED TO SAMPLE PUBLIC OPINION FOR THIS REPORT IS INCLUDED. (WO)
